Cristiano Ronaldo Scored Four in Portugal Rout of Luthuana
Cristiano Ronaldo scored four to take his international tally to 93 goals as Portugal claimed a 5-1 win over Lithuania in Euro 2020 qualifying on a night to forget for goalkeeper Ernestas Setkus.
With Ronaldo’s early penalty having been cancelled out by Vytautas Andriuskevicius before half-time, Setkus was guilty of a blooper when he fumbled a strike from the Juventus forward to again hand this year’s Nations League winners the advantage.
Ronaldo soon added two more before William Carvalho added a late fifth to seal the win over Group B’s bottom side.
Second-placed Portugal moved within five points of leaders Ukraine, who they have a game in hand on, with the victory.
